I used GingerBreak v1.2 but Z4root is basically the same thing. Open it up and hit "Root phone" select permanent or temporary root (I went with permanent ) and let it do its thing. And your phone will reboot once rooted.
I suggest going with 2.3 PlayfulGod's CM 7.2 07282011 is a great build and Im running Bobz's CM7.1RC1-Ascend-BobZ-07082011. Both of them build great ROMs
This is how I do it:
Flash the recovery in ROM manager
Download the ROM you want with the Gapps from PrepaidAndroid.com to your computer
Transfer the ROM, Gapps to your phone
Go into ROM Manager and select "Reboot into recovery"
It will reboot and take you into clockwork recovery
Then choose "Wipe data/factory reset" and click yes
hit back and go one down to "Wipe cache partition" select yes
hit back again and go down to "Advanced" and select "Wipe Dalvik" and select yes
Hit back again and go to "Mounts and storage"
Select "Format boot" yes and click back
"Format system" yes, back
"Format data" yes, back
"Format cache" yes, back
Hit back again to go back to the main menu
Select "Install zip from sd" and flash the ROM
Once thats done Flash the Gapps
Hit back to go to the main menu and select "Advance" and go down to "Fix Permissions"
Then back to the main and "select reboot phone"
And bam youre done.
Oh also I like Wireless Tether for Root Users better then Barnacle
